A possible end to the shutdown of 29 US west coast ports was in sight, amid signs the White House will go to court to end the gridlock that is costing America up to two billion dollars a day.
Shipping industry sources told AFP that they expected the administration of President George W. Bush to seek a court order in San Francisco to order shippers to reopen idled dockyards and for longshoremen to return to work.
"We understand that the government will go to court today (Tuesday) to seek an injunction under the Taft-Hartley Act," said a source at the Pacific Maritime Association, which represents shippers.
